The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    im a quote guy man. theres too many.

    I like all that Jack Handy stuff.

    "If Jesus was conceived by immaculate conception, Mary was deflowered at his birth!" - Jan Wolkers

    "Driving, me? Driving is for chauffeurs!" - Onno Quint in Harry Mulisch`s The discovery of heaven.

    Love is when you think you know what it is

    Love is the delusion that one woman differs from another

    I dont know much about the meaning of life, but I know for sure, that it isn`t, to sit around and think about what it is all your life"- Theo Maassen

    You should never hit a man with glasses. Works much better with your fist

    Anything worth doing is worth doing right

    "The Earth isn`t flat, its round man. like a pancake" - Herman
    Finkers

    "I dont need no dog, cuz the Lord is my shephard" - Bert Visscher

    Nobody makes a bigger change in history, than those who report it

    "War is delightful to those who have had no experience of it." -- Desiderius Erasmus

    When thrown up high enough a peanut buttered slice of bread always falls with the peanut buttered side down.

    "The common people of the place know me already, and love me, particularly the children. When at first I associated with them, and inquired in a friendly tone about their various trifles, some fancied that I wished to ridicule them, and turned from me in exceeding ill-humour. I did not allow that circumstance to grieve me: I only felt most keenly what I have often before observed. Persons who can claim a certain rank keep themselves coldly aloof from the common people, as though they feared to lose their importance by the contact; whilst wanton idlers, and such as are prone to bad joking, affect to descend to their level, only to make the poor people feel their impertinence all the more keenly.
    I know very well that we are not all equal, nor can be so; but it is my opinion that he who avoids the common people, in order not to lose their respect, is as much to blame as a coward who hides himself from his enemy because he fears defeat. "

    - Goethe I like his work better in Dutch than English. I think its better translated because dutch is closer to german.

    But I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, his greatest fulfillment of all he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious. -Vince Lombardi

    Its all or nothing, there is no inbetween.

    You must push your body past the breaking point, only then will you reach beyond its physical limits.

    Any exercise that is perfectly safe, is perfectly useless.

    Pain is weakness leavning the body.

    Well it's not really a quote, they're lyrics. And they're in my sig.
    Best way to cheat on deadlifts...

    Stand there for a few minutes, then pace back and forth a lot, huff and puff, wait until everybody's looking. Approach the bar. Back off. Approach it again. Back off. Get some water. Chalk up. Approach the bar again. Then spray some more chalk around. Wait until people start losing interest. When nobody's looking, pick it a little off the floor, and slam it down. Jump up and yell "LIGHT WEIGHT BABY". Then give high fives all around. - Belial

'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue his principles unto death." --Thomas Paine

    see sig.
    "It is often said, mainly by the "no-contests", that although there is no positive evidence for the existence of God, nor is there evidence against his existence. So it is best to keep an open mind and be agnostic. At first sight that seems an unassailable position, at least in the weak sense of Pascal's wager. But on second thought it seems a cop-out, because the same could be said of Father Christmas and tooth fairies. There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?"

    Richard Dawkins


    "Out of all of the sects in the world, we notice an uncanny coincidence: the overwhelming majority just happen to choose the one that their parents belong to. Not the sect that has the best evidence in its favour, the best miracles, the best moral code, the best cathedral, the best stained glass, the best music: when it comes to choosing from the smorgasbord of available religions, their potential virtues seem to count for nothing, compared to the matter of heredity. This is an unmistakable fact; nobody could seriously deny it. Yet people with full knowledge of the arbitrary nature of this heredity, somehow manage to go on believing in their religion, often with such fanaticism that they are prepared to murder people who follow a different one."


    Richard Dawkins
